Love and Hate

Love and Hate is a 8 players party negotiation game that encourage people to make more communication and think in different. We want to achieve the goal of balancing playing time between casual game and strategy game. The most challenging playing feature is that when you are going to another's base, someone behind you is actually looking at you! Basic rules: Each player has a base and a token. At the start of each round each player will secretly get a "lover" card and a "hater" card. The objective of the game is to move your token to someone's base. If any of two players brought their token to anyone base, that player die. For example in a 8 players game, the round will end when 3 players left. Scores will be given by killing some, your lover survived that round, your hater didn't survived that round or your own survival. Another important idea is you can defend your own base by simply placing your token in it. If you do that no body can get into your base and kill you.
